"Attention has focused on oil insecurity, and rightly so, but it is not the same as food insecurity. An empty gas tank is one thing, an empty stomach another. And while there are substitutes for oil, there are none for food." –Lester R. Brown, Plan B 4.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization.
Darren Taylor of Voice of America interviews Lester Brown for a five-part series on climate change. Mentioned in the articles 'Pessimism Rife Ahead of Global Climate Change,' 'Extreme Weather Intensifies International Food Crises,' and 'Financing Green Fund Expected to be a Hot Topic at Climate Change Talks.'
